    The students are the ones that lose on this one. And all of the programs that get cut when the district admits that they don’t have time to hold their administrators accountable for mismanagement. SO sad.

    I’m shocked a public official has actually been convicted of wrongdoing in this city. That is r-a-r-e. Others get away with much worse.

  3. I don’t know Mr. Harding. He might have been a fine, upstanding citizen his whole life. Temptations, when in positions of power, are great.

    That doesn’t make it right and the fact that NUSD is not seeking restitution, when they are in such severe budget crisis, indicates to me that it is acknowledged all the way around that Harding’s was a normal and accepted way to do business. He was just the unfortunate one who got caught.

    Let’s see. After living here in Natomas Park for SIX years, I’m pretty sure I have surpassed 536 hours of community service. And I did it out the desire to make my community the best it can be (or at least better). Maybe if I commit a crime, I will be sentenced to time served? Trixie
